Be nice to SMS, it is the thought that counts! Better to be early than late anyway. Glad it was 'Merry' instead of 'Happy'. I prefer Merry over Happy any day.

Ok ok just having a bit of fun. I'm always nice to SMS. :D

You won't hear that greeting cross my lips until after Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve. Guess I'm just old-fashioned.

SMS my Bavarian liebling sends you this:

LITTLE CHRISTMAS GEDICHT
When the last Kalendersheets
flattern through the winterstreets
and Dezemberwind is blowing
then ist everybody knowing
that it is not allzuweit
she does come the Weihnachtszeit

All the Menschen, Leute, people
flippen out of ihr warm Stüble
run to Kaufhof, Aldi, Mess
make Konsum and business,
kaufen this und jene things
and the churchturmglocke rings.

Manche holen sich a Tännchen
when this brennt they cry "Attention".
Rufen for the Feuerwehr
"Please come quick to löschen her!"
Goes the Tännchen off in Rauch
they are standing on the Schlauch.

In the kitchen of the house
mother makes the Christmasschmaus.
She is working, schufts and bakes
the hit is now her Joghurtkeks
and the Opa says als Tester
"We are killed bis to Silvester".
Then he fills the last Glas wine-
yes this is the christmastime!

Day by day does so vergang
and the holy night does come
you can think, you can remember
this is immer in Dezember.

Then the childrenlein are coming
candle-Wachs is abwärts running.
Bing of Crosby Christmas sings
while the Towerglocke rings
and the angels look so fine
well this is the Weihnachtstime.

Baby-eyes are kugelrund
the family feels kerngesund
when unterm Weihnachtsbaum they're hocking
then nothing can them ever shocking.
They are happy, are so fine
this happens in the christmastime.

The animals all in the house
the Hund, the Katz, the bird, the Maus,
are turning round the Weihnachtsstress,
enjoy this as never nie
well they find Kitekat and Chappi
in the Geschenkkarton of Papi.

The family behins to sing
and wieder does a Glöckchen ring.
Zum Song vom grünen Tannenbaum
the Tränen rennen down and down.
bis our mother plötzlich flennt
"The christmas-Gans im Ofen brennt!"
Her nose indeed is very fine
ENDE OF THE WEIHNACHTSTIME

Merry Christmas everyone!

I usually wait too until the day itself but, as sms says, it is hard to catch people who leave town (and their computers) when we wait until the actual day.

Guess it means the rest read the message when they get back

See you all in 2007 and will be travelling that first day of the year so wish you all the best now in case it is half over by the time I get there! :)
